Direct Metal Laser Sintering enables production of fully dense metal parts with comparable or higher tensile properties as compared to the conventionally produced parts. However, for a more widespread use of this additive manufacturing technique, material data should be obtained and evaluated with respect to the influencing manufacturing factors. In the case of Ti6Al4V alloy, the fatigue performance can be highly susceptible to the process related issues, such as build direction, porosity and surface condition. This study was undertaken to examine the fatigue life of Ti6Al4V specimens manufactured by Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technique and to investigate the influence of the surface state on the fatigue life. A high degree of anisotropy in the fatigue performance associated with the specimen build orientation was determined.
